The Atlantic Region encompasses the traditional lands of many Indigenous peoples including Mi’kmaq, Beothuk, Inuit of Nunatsiavut and NunatuKavut and the Innu of Nitassinan, Maliseet, and Passamaquoddy. We are grateful for their stewardship of this land since time immemorial and are honored to live, work and grow on this land. We acknowledge the ways in which agriculture was used as a tool for colonization and the way that our food system has been built using the knowledge and labour of Black and Indigenous communities. As farmers and members of the agriculture community, we all have a role to play in stewarding the land and taking action towards reconciliation. Let us take time to learn about the places where we live and grow and about the history of the place we call home.
